More than just a pretty bottle.
Joe Farrell owns The Landing Guest House on Harbor Island, Bahamas. He started having a private label wine made for his little business with a modern designed logo of a beautiful Bahamian woman’s face and detailed headdress. In 2008 he started bottling his own Rum blend to serve his guests as well. Soon, guest house visitors were requesting shipments of “that Rum with the Afro Head” to be shipped back home. Thus, a new business venture was born. It is available in both 7 and 15 year versions.
Afrohead XO 15 Year Old Premium Aged Dark Rum is based on cane molasses from the Dominican Republic and is fermented with a unique strain of yeast that is only used in Trinidad. It’s this yeast that lends a “toffee & banana” essence and we think that’s a pretty tasty thing indeed. Distillation is performed to taste — as it should be — up to 5 times. Most Rums are only distilled 2 or 3 times. Ageing takes place in first fill ex-Bourbon casks. It’s no wonder all those hotel guests were clamoring for more.
